I was second man two years ago, receiving 4072, and 1 am now 1011 votes ahead of the siaa who now opposes me. And as I enter the run-off primary, in justice to myself, my family and my friends. I v.-ant to forever put an end to the slanderous falsehoods that my enemies, have Tised and are now using against me -with reference to the fees" of offic« when I -was County Attorney in l^lfc; Therefore I submit the following statement made by rxjr. John S. Baker, wno -was your County Auditor then and who is your County Auditor now. This statement was mude in June, 1922, long before this present campaign was conceived. Paris. Texas. June 20th, 1522 TO WHOM CONCERNED:— In answer to any inquiry that may be made touching the subject, I desire to say that Grady Sturgeon, formerly of this county, served as County Attorney during my incumbency as County Auditor from !>ecember 1st, 1316, to December 1st, 191S. His first annual report was filed Tune 2nd v lSlS. which was promptly approved by me, His second report was filed March iSth, It»lS t and in it he claimed an overpayment of S570.00 for the previous year, as I understand it, by reason of a subsequent decision of the Court of Civil Appeals at San Antonio, and a.lso withheld other funds •which, according: to my audit amounted to $605,00 based, on this same decision and both being funds received from the State of Texas. Later, and during- the year 1320. the report came that the Supreme Court had reversed the Court of Civil Appeals in the case referred to and suit was at once brought for the balance due. amounting to 51240.34. principal and interest; ^*>en an agreed judgment was entered on October 27th. 1920. This, judgment was paid April 23rd. 1321. I W11VL STATE ALSO THAT THEIvE AV-1S NO EFFORT ON MR- STURGEON'S PART TO DEFRALT> THK COCNTY OR TO CONCEAL ANY RECEIPTS, BUT HIS CLAIM WAS BASED SOLKLY ON THE DECISION OF TTtE COURT. THIS AVAS AFTERWARDS REVERSED BY THE SUPREME COURT AND SUIT BROUGHT WITH THE RESULTS STATKD. {Signed) JOHX S. BAKEK, County Auditor. Lamar County. Texas. Xovr, my'friends, in addition to this. 1 not only invite you. but insist that you. in fairness to me. go to your Coutitj Auditor's office arid talk freely with Mr, Baker about how and why this situation arose and I telieve he wiH- tell you that this litigation was brought about wholly as a political reason and not that justice miglit be done, I>on't you think that my years of experience, with my qualifications &n& witli my anibiiion to move ont^ard ajid upward, ajzd after making two clean but hard cam- p-3ti^ns for this office with the results heretofore stated, that I deserve the support of those citizens who want the Cnm^ai La.%vs of this State enforced? .. I again pledge you every minute of say time and the best efforts of my life to see to it that this office is fjll«4 like It should be : filled and to your sitistectlon. HesptctfuIIy s-ubmitted.
